Now that I am finally catching up on the internet at large from the past few weeks, it's time for some linkspam!
I'm still trying to get through all of the greatness that came out of various Robin Hood-related gift exchanges. Not to toot my own organizational horn or anything, but the capslock_hood
Secret Santa turned out AWESOME, even if the comments completely ate my inbox. LINK IN CASE YOU MISSED THE GREATNESS
. (And actually, oh, I just realized -- there's still one gift missing, but hopefully we'll have it up soon enough.) My own contribution of a shameless Guy/Robin vid:
Guy/Robin - Shackled to Each Other from ForYourEdification on Vimeo.
wrote me some Mazabella (!!!! I KNOW!!) for isabella_giz
: the red queen and the whitelalumena

Now that I have some free time to catch up on sewing projects, I'm going back to my old habit of browsing etsy for some handmade inspiration -- and, as usual, I have happened upon some true horrors. WHAT, PRAY TELL, IS THIS?
NO, REALLY, WHAAAAAT??!!?! It's like that episode of Daria where Jane wants to become
The Lady and The Tiger by bleaching streaks into her hair. Looking at embroidery pieces always depresses me, though, because on the one hand I deeply appreciate the sheer number of long tedious hours that go into making these things, but on the other hand... sorry. Why on Earth would somebody pay $40 for this
? I really really love this store
, though, and wish I had $30 to drop on a pincushion. LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THIS ONE IS.
I also picked up my final paycheck from Retail Job today, and it was quite a bit more than I anticipated because I forgot that I was getting paid for two weeks instead of just one. Whee! Unexpected money! (Or, alternately -- whee! I have no handle on my personal finances and forget when my pay periods are!)
ETA: HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN TO INCLUDE THIS??! The whole series is awesome, but, I mean, COME ON OF COURSE THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE:
